SEA Foundation – AiR Tilburg is inviting applicants for its 2020/2021 residency program in the Netherlands. The residencies are designed for visual artists, curators and writers whose work and life demands both a rigorous engagement as well as an urgency to propel progress in their practice. The SEA Foundation’s individually shaped residency program is limited to 8 participants per year, with a duration up to 3 months.
The SEA Foundation is seeking candidates who envision a solid plan for development and production. The open call is for professional artists, curators and art writers, with an established, mid-career, or emerging practice; regardless of gender or region. All applicants must be 25 at the start of the residency and it is expected that the applicant sufficiently comprehends the English language in order to converse and collaborate with fellow participants and staff. Duos and collectives are also welcome to apply and residents may be accompanied by a partner.
Applications must be completed in English via an online form, with applicable documentation. The registration fee is €35.
Two applicants of the open call will receive the award of a fully-funded residency. This award includes free use of the live-work studio and a stipend of €550 euro per month when in residence. In addition, the SEA Foundation covers the costs of a public event, exhibition or the production of an artist’s book.
The residency aims to support the production of art and the theory of art; to evoke discourse on art and art practices within a local and global context; to promote and relay critical and researched based production of art and to facilitate exchange between art intermediaries and artists, creating an expert network.
